Day 62 :: Four, Four, 0 Seven

Day 62 - Roigan

On a warm LA night last October, six friends sat around a picnic table eating Thai food and making grand plans.

The dream was that we would all meet in Bangkok on April 4, 2007. We talked about laying on secluded beaches, trekking over waterfalls and sipping Century Changs until the sun came up. Kari and I left that night saying how amazing (and how unlikely) it would be to all meet on the other side of the world, seven months later.

On Wednesday, April 3, two friends boarded a plane in St. Louis with Bangkok as it's destination. A few hours later, another friend boarded a plane in Los Angeles. On the morning of the fourth, Kari and I hopped on a bus in Cambodia that would arrive in Bangkok 15 hours later. And waiting to pick us up was another who moved to Bangkok recently.

Today, the six of us walked across the street and jumped into eighty degree water. Cheers to making things happen...with your friends.
